WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) - Operators of oil field crew camps in Williston are fighting this week’s deadline for the camps to shut down.

Lawyers for the camp operators have asked a federal judge for an injunction against the deadline that passed Thursday. U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland didn’t immediately rule.

Targets Logistics, Halliburton and Lodging Solutions sued earlier, maintaining they’re being treated unfairly. The city disputes that, saying there are enough apartments and hotels in the city now to handle the housing needs.

Mayor Howard Klug says he’s disappointed with the latest legal move. He says the crew camp operators will be subject to daily fines if they don’t shut down.
